Abstract

A regiospecific method for the ring-opening reaction of epoxides by the primary, secondary, tertiary alcohols, and aryl, aliphatic amines has been developed using non-toxic metal nitrate salt as a catalyst. The best results were obtained using zirconium(IV) oxynitrate among the various screened metal nitrate salts. The reported protocol works efficiently for styrene epoxide and aliphatic as well.
